REALTORS® Charitable Foundation Announces $100,000 in Available Funds to Support Vulnerable Youth in the Fraser Valley
The Fraser Valley REALTORS® Charitable Foundation (FVRCF) is announcing its first round of granting for local charities working directly with marginalized and vulnerable youth in the Fraser Valley. One-time grants of $1,000 to $10,000 are available during this round of granting.
Registered Canadian charities located in, or who offer programs within, the Fraser Valley communities of Surrey, Langley, North Delta, White Rock, Abbotsford, or Mission, and who work directly with at-risk youth, are invited to apply by March 17, 2023. Charities will be notified of the results of their application in early April.
“We aim to be a low-barrier granting agency, determined to get much-needed funds to charitable organizations working directly with our at-risk youth,” says John Barbisan, Chair of the FVRCF Board of Directors. “If you are a registered charity working directly with at-risk youth under the age of 29, we encourage you to apply for a grant.”
The recently established FVRCF is among the largest charitable foundations in the Fraser Valley and one of the largest in the real estate sector in Canada, thanks to the generosity of Realtors and members of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB).
“Realtors are incredible contributors to their communities and give back selflessly as donors and volunteers, says Christiane Hodson, Executive Director of the FVRCF. “Because of the foresight and generosity of Fraser Valley Realtors, the FVRCF will make a significant difference in our communities, in perpetuity.”
